Rapper Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Mathers (48), will perform in the upcoming TV drama BMF (short for Black Mafia Family), which will air on STARZ later this year.

The executive producer of the series is  50 Cent, and the plot is based on the true story of two brothers who, after a difficult childhood, founded an organization that quickly became one of the largest criminal families in U.S. history.

Eminem will play Rick Wershe Jr, aka White Boy Rick, in one episode of the series. Wershe was recruited by the FBI as an informant as a teenager and was later sentenced to life in prison for possession of cocaine.

50 Cent confirmed on its Twitter profile on Tuesday that young Wershe Jr. will be played by Eminem. It is his first acting engagement since a role in the film ‘8 Mile’ 19 years ago.

It revealed that special anti-aging effects, similar to those in Scorsese’s 2019 film ‘Irishman’, were used during his scenes.
